Comment 304 for bug 173890

And how do you suggest this focus on backend logic and focus on user ease of getting flash is done ? The problem is not ubuntu, or linux in general, how can package maintainers be expected to be up to date real time with Adobe changing the file and it's location with no notice. Instead of chasing this up with ubuntu direct your focus on adobe,

Matt

None of this really does anything for the guy who just bought his Ubuntu
preinstalled laptop/desktop hoping to get into Linux. Focus should be on
usability of future flash updates from an end user standpoint, just make
the backend logic work. When faced with end users struggling or
breaking a packaging policy you should be thinking of your higher
interest the end user.

No. Having the 64-bit version packaged is Bug 299146. :-)

Either way, anyone wanting to use the Ubuntu package is going to have to
put up with the periodic breakage. So my point is that they can either
wait for the package to go through the update process, or install it
themselves. The latter being trivial in the 64-bit case, since there
are no 32-bit libraries and wrapper to deal with.
